  • Well i used the store brand of first response and got a positive at 11 days past ovulation, which was maybe 3 days before my period was due. it sometimes takes much longer, depending on the levels of HCG in your urine...GL

  • I got my positive 5 days before my period was due. But every woman is different as far as the hormones go, and I know of people who do not get positives until they are a week late!

  • When I had my babies, there were no home pregnancy tests and the doctors did not want to see prospective mothers until they had missed two periods. I can't get used to the fact that women today want to know the next morning whether or not they are pregnant. To me, it seems like a waste of money to buy the tests. If you are expecting, you will know it soon enough. If you are not, that too will become apparent pretty quickly. Guess that's the difference between the microwave instant generation and the one I came from!!

  • The earliest I've gotten a positive result was the day before I was supposed to start. Usually I have the intuition before those dumb tests work. My last pregnancy I used the 6 day early result and got a positive. I then went to the health department and got 4 negative tests. So that shows you how cheap the health deptartment tests are anyway... There's a website that lists the hcg detection levels in tests and the 6 day early result is on the top of the list for detecting the lowest levles. Your levels increase every 2 days so if your still unsure test again in a few days..
